HR Manager (Zagreb)

Support us in setting up our Zagreb Office.

We dislike little information when looking for a job, a person applying for a job is taking a much higher commitment and risk than we do as a company, so it is important to turn off the "bla-bla" and be as clear about the position we are looking for as possible. We are looking for a candidate that is as committed as we in a hiring process without excuses. We have become a relevant player in the last years as we understood component based architecture, headless ecommerce and qualitative execution ahead of its time and our work still proves our technical excellence.
